    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★★

    Out of all the sequels and reboots fuelled by 80s nostalgia in the posts 2010s, who’d have thought Top Gun Maverick would be the pinnacle of them all? 

    Not only a great sequel that respects Tony Scott’s pop culture iconography, but a soulful Legacy sequel too. 

    So much will be said about the spectacle and I can barely do it justice here. Unbelievable set pieces, tension and quite frankly - it just goes really fucking hard. 

    Honestly, films like this are why I love films so much. Tom Cruise, the last movie star.

    Simu Liu smoked everyone in a pair of Jordans. You cannot mess with this heat.

    Time. A force that we have determined to be a construct that we abide by. Can we ever really feel the importance of it going by us, second by second? Perhaps we should try.

    ARRIVAL is profound yet minimalist. A gorgeous study of the entity that we try to appease everyday and the choices we must face. Villenueve and Young are a godsend combo, coming straight after two Villeneuve / Deakins collabs (Prisoners , Sicario). ARRIVAL shares more in common with Enemy but on a flipped coin. 

    I adored this.

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★½

    This year really is the year for Spider-Man.

    Emotionally charged and charmingly wholesome, Into The Spider-Verse is a bombastic tale that is only exceeded by its stunning animation style.

    Might be a 5 on rewatch tbh.
